Renegade Riddims: Decaz


At just 24, George Haselwanter, aka Decaz, is making waves in the Drum & Bass and Dubstep scenes. He caught the music bug at 12 years old and hasn’t looked back since, diving deep into the world of electronic beats and vibes.

In 2019, Decaz jumped into the DJ game full throttle, bringing a passion that’s infectious. Mixing the best of Drum & Bass’ energetic beats with Dubstep’s mesmerizing sounds, his sets are like a rollercoaster ride of rhythm and groove.

But Decaz isn’t just about spinning tracks; he’s a creative force. He’s the driving force behind Resonate Records, a DJ collective he started with his closest buddies. It’s not just about the music; it’s about the friendships that got him into DJing in the first place. On top of that, he’s carving out his own niche with Empathy Audio, a label all about pushing boundaries while keeping that authentic underground vibe alive.

Inspired by legends like Seba, Alix Perez, and dBridge, Decaz has crafted a style all his own. His gigs have seen him sharing stages with big names like Document One, S.P.Y, and Technimatic, just to name a few. Every gig with these icons fuels his fire and pushes him to keep exploring new sounds.

As Decaz’s journey unfolds, you can bet he’ll keep delivering unforgettable performances. So, hop on board and join him as he continues to make his mark on the local and global underground music scenes.

After working together for what seems like forever, we thought it’s about time Decaz joined our Renegade Riddims series. He joins us today with a brand new, exclusive mix featuring music from artists such as K Sonic, Dub Ten, Zero T, Alix Perez, Monrroe, Ill Truth, Leks, Jam Thieves, Bungle, Yannons and loads more!

The Last time I raved was when I saw Nu:Logic and Etherwood in Vienna, it was an awesome time!
